controversial. senator john kerry is much beloved by everybody and capitol hill and even john mccain said he would endorse him. so that will go through without controversy. i think both of these men will be confirmed previously. but people don't think the secretary of defense choice is a signal maybe we will not be as aggressive as some with light in defending israel. host: that is chuck hagel. minimum wage, you expect such issues to come up? guest: first, one of the things that was most interesting about the speech yesterday, coming off a campaign that was so focused on jobs, was the relative lack of a direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. now, this was not a set of policy proposals, which woodpeck which there would be more about that in the state of the union. but it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address that he gave yesterday. as far as some of these labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the state's. i think there is a national political aspect to this. i don't know, frankly, exactly what plans they ha
durbin of illinois and bob menendez of new colorado's l bennet. republicans are john mccain, south carolina's lindsey graham, marco rubio of florida and jeff flake of arizona. this comes as president obama flies to las vegas to outline his vision for immigration. senator durbin says immigration reform, a comprehensive plan is long overdue. >> we are committed to a comprehensive approach to finally in this country have an immigration law we can live with. we've virtually going for 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that is unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> reporter: the plan also calls for easier entry for immigrants who have math, science and engineering skills. bill? bill: there is a lot of politics laced to this entire issue. how do the politics figure into this proposal, steve? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fa
sides, chuck schumer, dick durbin, john mccain, lindsey graham, marco rubio, you game it a lot of folks whose names you'll recognize at this announcement. this plan, we're told would provide a path to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens already here in america. and our chief correspondent campaign carl cameron live from capitol hill. >> comprehensive immigration reform has basically been stalled by gridlock for almost a decade. republican and democrats have been going forward. tomorrow the president will announce some of his proposals in a news conference and in a speech in las vegas, so this really is an example of the bipartisan senate gang of eight, so-called, calling themselves. and lay down a marker and show that congress hasn't been ignoring this, and president has not dealing with it in his first term. it does have the path to citizenship. some critics say it amounts to amnesty. first, securing the border, whether that's a fence or a wall or uses technology instead, has always been a real point of contention, they would reduce the overstayed visa, a problem. 40% of the ill
. and he'll be introduced by senators john mccain, by elizabeth warren and the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's expected to be very different than the fiery hearing yesterday in that very same room where secretary clinton made a passionate defense to republican senators aggressive questioning about what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i want to bring in ron, national correspondent and editorial director, and michael crowley, times deputy washington bureau chief. good morning, ron, let me start with you. i thought the hearing yesterday had so many fascinating moments to it. should be very different today, don't you think? >> yeah. that was probably the best moment you pulled out there. that was secretary clinton being forceful, showing some accountability,
, senator john mccain was still demanding answers. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. people don't bring rpgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. >> but the harshest criticism of all came from paul legacy, senator rand paul, whose ambitions and disrespect seem to know no bounds. >> i'm glad you're accepting responsibility, i think ultimately with you leaving you're accepting responsibility for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have removed you from your post. >> it felt senator dick durbin to remind the chamber about actual failures and coverups. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed, and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on, "ir
's outgoing chairman enjoyed support, just about from everybody, and from hillary clinton and john mccain as well on his glide path towards confirmation to be secretary of state. that's the easy part. the hard part is what comes next. joining me now for our daily fix is chris caliz sxwl a and post politics.com nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly oh donnell and usa today's washington bureau chief, susan page. thanks very much. first to you. >> sure. >> john kerry has a lot -- very heavy lift to climbing budgets, climbing support for the state department. you have pakistan and afghanistan, with the drawal from afghanistan that will only make it harder, and that has impact on pakistan. china, and russia. leadership in russia, as you know, very, very complicated. where does he look first for support, and, you know, who wants this job? >> i would say the middle east -- the hard thing that you hit on is the challenges for a secretary of state and for the united states generally in foreign policy have not waned. they have probably increased. in libya and benghazi and secretary clinton tried to
a contributor for us. representative tancredo, john mccain is part of this bipartisan drupe. like i said, a lot of people together you wouldn't expect to be standing together. but here's what he said about why republicans have to do this deal and do this deal now. >> elections. elections. the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that there are many issues in which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens, but this is a preeminent issue for those citizens. >> obviously, when you look at the election last time, president obama got 71% of the latino vote. mitt romney, 27%. is john mccain right? >> no, he really isn't. he's no more right this time than he was back in, what, '87, when he and another gang tried to put together a very similar bill. he and a member of that time of it was called the mccain-kennedy bill. very similar in every respect to what i have seen so far. i must admit i haven't seen the whole thing. from what i heard about it, very similar. at any rate, it's the same rhetoric, and it's just as wrong today as it was then. the
beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterday that obama singled out issues like ensuring that women get equal pay as a key part of the principles he was trying to establish. host: republicans in the house and the senate, what are they saying on this? guest
foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent invention that only our rose about 5 under years ago in mesopotamia -- 500 years ago. what was the last conventional conflict that we have seen? 2008 when russia invaded georgia. there are thousands of people dying in countries like afghanistan, a rock, syria, -- mali. these are not conventional wars . we should not be surprised it has ever been thus and it will hus.ys pabe t they are the norm. we better be ready for the kind of wars we're seeing now. we're not going to be out of the business of fighting insurgencies. host: how is the u.s. military doing? how does the military prepare itself for future wars of this kind? guest: the
page of the wall street journal. "immigration debate gears up her." and here's john mccain talking about this proposal on abc. [video clip] >> i will give you some straight talk. look at the last election. we are losing dramatically in the hispanic vote, which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons. and we've got to understand that. second, we cannot go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows under an illegal status. we cannot forever have children who were born here, or brought here by their parents when there were small children and live in the shadows as well. so i think the time is right. host: that was senator john mccain. president obama and will be in las vegas on tuesday to lay out his vision on immigration. at c-span.org for all of our coverage of that event and when we finalize coverage details. the enormous object of the role of the united states on a world stage, we will go to kirby from quincy, illinois, on the democratic line. caller: thank you. i have been listening to some of these people calling in and criticizing mrs. clin
by elizabeth warren, john mccain, and hillary clinton. a vote on his nomination by the full senate is expected next week. >> good morning. this hearing of the senate foreign relations committee will come to order. let me ask, as i did yesterday, i ask unanimous consent of returning members to allow prospective member to complete -- participate in today's hearing. if there is no objection, it is so ordered. let me start by saying, you are not at the table yet, senator. we will have you there shortly. wow. let me say, mr. chairman, you are still our committees chaired, deeply humbled to preside over the committee today as we consider your nomination. we are honored to welcome you as the president's nominee for a position you have most deservedly earned. the first time you testified before chairman fulbright as a young returning vietnam war hero in 1971 to the day the president nominated and announced your nomination as secretary of state. you may not be aware of it, but you'll be the first member of this panel to send directly to the position since senator john sherman of ohio. you are clearly m
warren and senator mccain in introducing president obama's nominee. i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this. john is the right choice to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy. i urge speedy confirmation. as we have heard from both the chairman and ranking member and senator warren, he will bring a record of leadership at service -- and service that is exemplary. he has a view of the world that he has acted on first as a young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee for the time that he -- through the time that he served with such distinction as its chairman. he has been a valued partner to this administration and to me personally. he has fought for our diplomats and development experts. he understands the value of investing in america's global leadership. as we work to implement the accountability review board's recommendations, he is committed to doing whatever it takes to prevent another attack and protect our people around the world. working together, we have achieved a great deal. the state department and usaid have a lot
and that pregnancy is an issue. to senator john mccain it's really a question of equal standards for certain demanding jobs. >> i think women obviously are prepared to serve side by side with men in combat. i just want to emphasize though there shouldn't be the same physical and mental standards for anyone to perform certain roles and functions in the military many women say it's just a question of equal rights since serving in combat allows the soldiers to advance through the ranks farther and faster. >> we need to treat people like individuals. what are the capabilities they bring to the fight, which includes physical strengths, plus courage, plus aptitude, plus leadership and all the other things we need to have the most effective fighting force. >> military chiefs now until may 15th to make their case to the defense secretary about which jobs if any should still exclude women, heather. >> steve centanni live for us from washington. thank you, steve. greg? >> frantic search for an american woman missing in the middle east. the new york city mother of two vanished during a trip to turkey.

on the right. republicans really got absolutely crushed by gop primary voters. case in point was john mccain, standing right behind ted kennedy during that press conference. how did this come to pass? the november elections. we saw the numbers. it has been talked about and talked about since then, the fact that latino voters have been going up as a percentage of the electorate and republicans got fewer than they have in three presidential elections. so it was a real wake-up call we're told, particularly to republicans like john mccain and lindsey graham of south carolina, who had kind of been working on comprehensive immigration reform on and off again. lindsey graham called chuck schumer. they had the first of five meetings. some were after the election. and they set in motion this process, a timetable to have principles now, the end of january, legislative language in march and they hope to have some kind of vote in the senate before the august recess. >> let's talk about the timing of this announcement here. the president was -- he's going to go to vegas tomorrow and is supposed to outlin
